Nancie (History)
1 chapters   —   updated Jul 24, 2015 10:54AM
Description: Eleven-year old Nancie Knight’s world falls apart when her father dies and she is forced to go into service as a scullery maid. Never in her wildest dreams would she have envisaged such hard work, slaving from dawn to dusk. The housekeeper of The Manor, Miss Higginbottom, does not allow her any slack and the cook, Mrs Bell can never remember her name. Promises that she will soon be reunited with her mother and baby brother amount to nothing. On her first afternoon off, she falls and hurts herself, and then is stricken with an allergic reaction from burdock. She is accused of stealing candlesticks, and when she hears strange noises coming from one of the attic rooms, she goes to investigate. Disobeying an order not to pursue the matter, she is sacked and forced to leave. A man takes her in, offering her a job, but she runs away after he beats her up. She is then befriended by a shepherd’s wife and goes to live with her and her family.

Then there is the worry that he won’t be home to protect Alice from the nanny who he thinks might harm her, now he is not there to bear the brunt of her spite. He finds it hard to make friends and the other boys snigger when he falls back into his old way of speaking. He is bullied and falls out of a window but will not tell anyone how it happened. During the summer holiday the family goes to Scarborough, taking Sarah, but the holiday is cut short because Jamie has an accident. Will he ever get anything right?
